Are you having a hard time transferring all your hard work in training practices to the competition mat?

Are you feeling so anxious about performing because you don’t want to disappoint your coach, family, and friends to the point that you can’t think clearly and perform to the best of your ability?

Are you trying to perform perfectly in competition? Do you beat yourself up after mistakes and dwell on errors?

If you said “yes” to any of these, you are not alone and there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Whether you are a black belt who is trying to become a world champion, a white belt competing in local tournaments, whether you are 20 years old or 40 years old, both athletes are pursuing success, according to each one’s realities and goals, by reaching their full potential and performing to the best of their abilities.

As Jiu-Jitsu becomes more sophisticated, athletes who fail to properly utilize psychological tools place themselves at a disadvantage in performance and satisfaction. An investment in M.S.T. may spell the difference between high achievement and mediocrity for athletes.

There are many specific mental skills that contribute to success in Jiu-Jitsu and other areas of our lives. Psychological skills techniques help athletes make adjustments to their actions, thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations that will improve their performance on the mat. They can all be learned and improved with instruction and practice. M.S.T. (mental skills training)refers to the systematic and consistent practice of mental or psychological skills with the purpose of enhancing performanceincreasing enjoyment, and gaining greater self-satisfaction.

What is the ultimate goal of MST?

After mental skills training, an athlete should be able to monitor or self-regulate his or her own emotional and performance state. Self-regulation is the ability to work toward goals by effectively monitoring and managing your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. This is the goal of MST, to help the athlete become self-sufficient and self-regulating.
